A.V AWFUL SIGHT. , March !).—A woman named Ellen Mery, described as the American lion tamer, was torn to pieces oa Friday, while going through her performance in the' lions' den at Ahlbeck's menagerie in Chemnitz. Her mangled body was got out of the cage after a desperate fight with three lionesses, but the unfortunate girl expired shortly after the rescue. PAEIS, March 0.—A terrible scene, by which a well-known lion tamer will lose his life, was witnessed at the hippodrome in this city. The spectacle of "Nero" is being prepared at the hippodrome, one of the features of the show as proposed being an attack by a number of lions upon wooden, figures so arranged in the arena as to represent human bodies. Sects, the lion tamer, had just concluded the day's drilling- or training of six lions for this performance and was driving them back into their cages, when one ol them sullenly refused to re-enter Ms cage. Seets managed to cage the remaining five lions, and then turned his attention to the rebellious animal, which had angrily taken refuge in a neighboring passage. Seets armed himself with a lance and tried to dislodge the refractory lion, but in so doing: he tripped and lost hold of his lance, the weapon rolling several yards away from him. Before the lion-tames- could regain possession of £lie lance the angry lion sprang upon the unfortunate man, hurled him to the floor and bit and rent him in a most horrible manner. Seets cries for help soon brought another of the trainers to the scane. The latter caught up the lance and gallantly attacked the lion,inflicting a severe wound with the weapon in the animal's forehead. Cowed by the wound received, the lion released poor Seets and slunk into its cage. Medical assistance was promptly sent for, and everything possible was done to save the lion tamer's life, but the latest reports are that he is in a dying condition. STRUCK BY A TRAIN.
